Cat Out of the Bag Alert!  This review contains some spoilers for this film!

Synopsis: American Robert Lomax (William Holden) arrives in Hong Kong to try his hand at painting and is intrigued by a call girl named Suzie Wong (Nancy Kwan).

Cat Burglar (Scene Stealer): Robert Lomax seeks a hotel in a poor section of Hong Kong and walks into an establishment owned by a man named Ah Tong (Andy Ho). Ah Tong is at the reception desk feeding some food via chopsticks to a gorgeous tabby cat with white markings.
